Antietam Burnside Bridge Half-Day Hike

Antietam Burnside Bridge Half-Day Hike
Sunday, January 12, 2014

On September 17, 1862, at what is now the Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg MD, Union and Confederate armies fought, resulting in over 23,000 casualties. There were three primary engagements that day that would become known as The Cornfield, Bloody Lane, and The Burnside or Lower Bridge.

This hike is a figure-8 loop that crosses the Burnside Bridge and follows the hauntingly beautiful Antietam Creek where so many soldiers lost their lives or were injured during one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War.
